Angel Tree

The 2022 Angel Tree is underway!

We’ve received wish list requests for individual gifts from Lancaster Intensive Day Treatment School and CrossNet Ministries.  We’ve also received lists of generic requests from St. Anne’s Retirement Community, Zerbe Retirement Community, Lancaster Nursing & Rehab Center and Thistledown, the co-operative living house at Garden Spot Village.  Beginning the weekend of November 4-5, there will be tags on the tree (which will be located in the old social hall) for the individual gifts. A list of the more generic requests will be published in the bulletin and can be found below. Thank you so much in advance!  We know your generosity and kind hearts will share joy abundantly!   

Option #1 ~ A tag from the tree in the Old Social Hall. If you’d like a wish list of ideas in order to gift a youngster.  You may buy as many items from the list as you’d like.  Pick and choose what you’d like to give from the list, but don’t feel like you must buy and give everything on the list!  Place the unwrapped present in a gift bag and please use the tag as a label for the bag. These gifts have been requested by CrossNet and Lancaster Intensive Day Treatment School.
